Male Voice Choir to get Freedom of Liverpool

THE FREEDOM of Liverpool is being awarded to Liverpool Male Voice Choir on Monday, 7 December.  The organisation was formed in 1911 by a small group of men living in Wavertree and has been performing and representing the City ever since, often supporting charitable events.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Tony Concepcion, said:- "I am delighted to be able to confer the Freedom Roll of Associations and Institutions on Liverpool Male Voice Choir in recognition of its cultural contribution to the City. The choir and its members have been true ambassadors and a credit to Liverpool and all members past and present can be very proud of their achievements. The choristers share a unique passion, entertaining so many with their beautiful music and I am particularly delighted that they are going to perform at the ceremony."

Michael Gollop, Chairman of Liverpool Male Voice Choir, said:- "Liverpool Male Voice Choir is deeply honoured to receive the City of Liverpool's highest accolade and it is a great thrill for the choir to be recognised in this way. We are moved and humbled yet supremely proud to stand alongside the many illustrious Associations and Institutions who have hitherto rendered eminent service to this City.  Our founding choristers could not have envisaged such a prestigious award back in 1911, as they forged the new choir. The Constitution they pioneered still holds true today as we continue to study the practice of Male Voice singing, while striving for choral excellence, and the concert performance of suitable works. It is our passion for singing that draws us together, but underpinning this is the camaraderie and friendship we share. After 104 years, the choir continues to thrive, remaining committed to Liverpool's vibrant music scene."

Liverpool Male Voice Choir regularly hosts choirs from around the UK and overseas with recent visitors from South Wales, Japan and Norway.  For more information about Liverpool Male Voice Choir, log on to the groups website.
